Ian Bailey's extradition hearing has been further delayed today.
The journalist is wanted in France in connection with the murder of French film producer Sophie Toscan du Plantier.
She was found dead at her holiday home in Schull, Co Cork in December 1996.
The High Court had intended to set a hearing date today over France's request to extradite Bailey.
It was informed that while Mr Bailey is keen for the case to proceed, his legal team are waiting on an affidavit from a French lawyer they are consulting.
The lawyer has been delayed trying to find out precisely what the French extradition warrant is based on because he does not have access at present to the relevant court file.
The 53-year-old journalist has always denied any involvement in Sophie Toscan du Plantier's death.
He is contesting his surrender to France, alleging abuse of process and garda misconduct.
Mr Justice Michael Peart has put the matter back until October.
